PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

February 10, 2009 -

The PC Gaming Alliance, which welcomed publisher Capcom to its ranks last week, has unveiled a new website.

The updated PCGA home page is definitely an improvement over the original. Randy Stude, PCGA president, commented on the transition: 

Visitors... will see that the PCGA is the place that PC Gaming companies of all types can come together to collaborate to help solve problems that plague our industry. Our membership remains steadfast in the belief that this is vital to ensuring the continued growth and health of PC Gaming globally.

GP: Now if they'd just update their blog once in a while...

Re: PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

Anything that can improve the status of PC gaming I'm fully in support of. PC gaming has been sucking lately thanks to the big companies pulling back on resources. I feel jipped. My paid big money for my rig, and honestly its way different than my xbox 360. I guess the piracy bug has really been the driving force behind pc gaming and suckage. Thats too bad. I hope the free pc game model works with Ea's battlefield heroes. Either that or Starcraft will bring PC gaming back to the forefront.

I'm new!

The new design is nice. Now about the DRM assfuckery and key locking...

I see that the PCGA still has their priorities straight. Things they do nothing about:

- Over the top DRMs

- Over the top prices

- Bad ports

- Forced console exclusives

- Bad control of sales (not taking most online sales into account)

Of course, half of their members are PC's worst offenders: Microsoft (monopoly, buying exclusives for xbox, forcing delays in PC release dates, abysmal OS support, PC market rupture with DX9 & DX10...), Intel (integrated graphics chips), Epic (hates PC, why are they even in the PCGA?), ATI  & nVidia (price fixing), etc.

And what do they do?

- A new website

- (every two months, from any member at random) EVERYTHING IS BECAUSE OF PIRACY!!!! PIRACY IS BAD!!!! PIRACY IS KILLING PC!!!!

With these friends, who wants enemies?.

<looks at website, most notably member companies>

I thought the CEO of EPIC said they weren't developing for PC after their UT3 debacle that they blamed on piracy. Doesn't sound like someone I want promoting PC gaming.

Re: PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

How about tell devs not to lock keys and ensure all PC games are full customizable control wise..... the port and dumb mentality of modern gaming is making the console version more configurable than the PC version...

Andrew EisenTwilight Princess would be my favorite if it didn't have a few notable design issues. But yeah, those few things aside, it absolutely trumps Ocarina in most every way.05/29/2015 - 4:11pm
WonderkarpTwilight Princess is my favorite Zelda. Its a legit sequal to Ocarina, enhancing everything Ocarina had, and I hope there's a HD Remaster with gamecube controls. Make it Nintendur!05/29/2015 - 4:08pm
E. Zachary KnightI borrowed Wario World, Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. So I am going to try to play at least one of them this weekend.05/29/2015 - 3:52pm
MattsworknameIm gonna be splittingmy time between blood borne, the witcher 3, tokiden, and some pc games.05/29/2015 - 3:34pm
DocMelonheadIn fact, if the whole campaign is to make fun of Zoe Quinn, Leigh Alexander, and Brianna Wu, then I'm not going to stop them.05/29/2015 - 2:30pm
Wonderkarp@andrew game parody idea. 50 shapes of grey05/29/2015 - 2:30pm
DocMelonheadBut I highly doubt that they encourage "death threats"; even they know that gone too far.05/29/2015 - 2:29pm
Wonderkarpi mean, i could create a a random twitter, tweet #blacklivesmatter along with terrinle racist death threats to somebody and be and youd claim the tag was a harrasment campaign by that logic. no. its a bigger issue than a random hashtag05/29/2015 - 2:28pm
DocMelonheadIf by Harass as in "Mock and Ridicule", then yes, GamerGate encourage that along with everyone else that made fun of others.05/29/2015 - 2:28pm
Andrew EisenNeed to finish Wonderful 101. Need to start Bayonetta and Pikmin 3. Yep, lots of stuff to play.05/29/2015 - 2:23pm
Andrew EisenKarp - I've been playing through New Super Mario Bros. 2. Also Shapes of Gray and OlliOlli. Really want to go back and finish Xenoblade Chronicles and Last of Us but probably won't have time for a bit.05/29/2015 - 2:22pm
Wonderkarpi never said it was "gamergates massive harrasment campaign". i mean, truth be told, crap was slung at her long before gamergate was a thing.05/29/2015 - 2:21pm
IronPatriotDocMelonHead, do you also acknowledge that the gamergate accusations of bad "ethics in journalism" against them have been proven false? Thus making gamergate's "journalism ethics" claim about them a sham and a fraud?05/29/2015 - 1:53pm
IronPatriotDocMelonhead, you "acknowledge that Wu, Quinn, and Sarkeesian, been harassed way before the creation of the hashtag" but do you acknowledge that gamergate is WRONG to carry out the massive campaign of harassment against them?05/29/2015 - 1:50pm
IronPatriotWonderkarp, it is good to hear you say that gamergate's massive harassment campaign is wrong. That is a long way from when all you would condemn them for is being "misguided and unfocused"05/29/2015 - 1:45pm
WonderkarpSo what are we all playing this weekend? I'm planning on splitting it between Splatoon and Witcher 3. Though I might stream Drakengard 3. I try to stream Games other people arent playing.05/29/2015 - 1:45pm
IronPatriotDocMelonhead, I do not think it is fair to blame the fraud of gamergate on conservatives just because some far-right, anti-feminist 4channers used harassment as a tool against women. Plenty of conservatives are just as appalled at gamergate as most people05/29/2015 - 1:30pm
IronPatriotThanks, James, for speaking out against the personal attacks. It will be good to see factual discussion.05/29/2015 - 1:25pm
Matthew Wilsonhttps://twitter.com/austin_walker/status/604278507632386048 giantbomb got a new hire this will be interesting. I never heard of him.05/29/2015 - 1:17pm
Wonderkarpdespite my feelings for Sarkeesians work, nobody deserves the kind of crap hurled at her.05/29/2015 - 12:52pm
